Dear Project Supporters, 

After the Ebola Epidemic, Develop Africa Sierra Leone set up a Tailoring Training Center for young ladies with the objective of helping young girls to learn sewing skills, empower themselves and become self-reliant. Your ongoing support has helped multiple vocational trainees get the training they need to be self-reliant.  Mabinty tells us in this video how vocational training has helped her. 

Hello, my name is Mabinty. I have been part of this Tailoring Training Centre since the Ebola outbreak. I really appreciate you all for your support. During the course of the Ebola outbreak, I lost my family. After the Ebola outbreak, I knew I needed to do something to provide for myself. So I became a part of the Tailoring Training Centre and I have been acquiring sewing skills. I want to say thank you because now I can sew shirts, I sew coats, I can sew men clothes, I sew women clothes and different styles and in return for my service to people, I have been paid which helps me to meet my needs. I appreciate that and I want to tell them thank you for what they have done for me. The other 20 students and I work hard and really appreciate the training. It is because of this opportunity that I have the training I need. I want to say thank you to you, I really appreciate it and I thank you for all you have done for me. 

We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational students. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Dear Project Supporters,

 

Your ongoing support has helped multiple vocational trainees at the Baptist Vocational Training Center. On Friday, June 7, 2019, Sylvester Renner, President of Develop Africa, visited the Baptist Vocational Training Center. 

Sylvester was warmly received by the trainees. When speaking to the trainees, he encouraged them to do their best to develop their skills as this was a path toward self-sufficiency.  A short video from Sylvester’s visit can be seen here.   

Management staff expressed their appreciation to Develop Africa for the support provided over the years. We are thankful for your generosity that is helping provide sewing machines and funds towards skills training.

Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your ongoing support that has helped multiple vocational trainees at the Baptist Women’s Vocational Training Center. Trainees at the Center are working hard to create a better future for themselves and their families. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is one of the three main priorities outlined by UNESCO and has been identified as the focus for the most important annual report on education, the Global Monitoring Report, in 2012.

Students are being trained and empowered in skills like tailoring, adult literacy, catering, Gara Tyre dying, soap making and Craft & handwork. These skills are an effective intervention that combats poverty and increases the strength of local economies further uplifting the people of Sierra Leone. See examples in the photos below from the current students at the Vocational Training Center.

Your generosity is truly making an impact on the staff and students at the Baptist Tailoring Institute. The students are learning skills that will help them be self-sufficient and provide for their families. We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational students. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

We are truly grateful for your ongoing support that most recently helped support teachers at the Vocational Tailoring Institute.  The teachers had not received a salary in several months and were very thankful for your generous support.   One of the teachers expressed her gratitude in this video saying-

On behalf of the Baptist Tailoring Institute, I want to say a big thank you to Develop Africa for your wonderful support towards our salaries

The students in the video said-  Thank you Develop Africa for supporting our teachers
